It’s that wonderful time of the year again where magic and excitement fill the air. People everywhere connect through a spirit of anticipation as the holiday season draws closer. It’s a time of hope and giving – a time of preparation and significance.
There is a special group of children who never stop believing – they believe they will get better and beat cancer, that they will soon be able to be children again. They live in the hope that they will run, play, laugh and live. They believe that the hurt will stop and that they will soon overcome the scary hurdles they are facing. These intrepid children believe everything’s going to be ok.
As we continue to strive to do the work we love for the children and teens in our care, we appeal to you for your generosity. By donating to CHOC Childhood Cancer Foundation South Africa, the high level of care and support we offer can be maintained. There are over 1736 children in our care. Their families and caregivers, the medical and nursing staff, counsellors and many others all do their utmost to continue to be that flame of hope.
Our work spans across many areas: CHOC accommodation facilities offer a home away from home for children and their parents/caregivers during treatment and follow up visits. The psychosocial team does amazing work for the children, their parents and family members, as well as support to the medical and nursing staff. Basic necessities such as care bags, food parcels and bereavement support are made available for the children and their families. And all come at a cost.
CHOC is the only organisation that provides comprehensive countrywide support for children with cancer and other life-threatening blood disorders. At this festive time of year, we need you to believe in our noble cause and make a donation. We cannot do it without your generous support!
Please support our cause and help make it possible for us to make a difference in the lives of children and teens with cancer.
